positive for the american media landscape. >> do you feel that president obama should use his second term to push through some of the things that he or you really believe in and how should he deal with the republicans, which has been the thorniest problem he faces? >> yeah. of course, i do believe that he should move boldly on the agenda that he articulated in his inaugural address. i was very pleased that he put the climate crisis front and center, the first issue he brought up. a very bold commitment. he spent more words on that than any other issue. i was very happy about that. i think he will follow through. i think he has to follow through and there are some actions he can take that do not require congressional approval. there is a law on the books that requires the epa to regulate pollution. the supreme court has agreed with the obvious interpretation that global warming pollution is pollution. it's been applied to new coal plants. it should be applied to all facilities. >> and how would you deal with the issue of the republicans? there are people who say obama is not a lyndon johns

. >> president obama, his last campaign promise to the american people, the final debate, this is what he said about sequester. >> first of all, sequester is not something that i proposed. it's something that congress has proposed. it will not happen. >> he said it will not happen. you're preparing for it to happen. it seems paul ryan was just on "meet the press" last week and he said it's more likely to happen than not. in your view, is this going to happen? >> in a world of responsible politics, it should not happen. >> ok. we don't live in that world right now. are you assuming it's going to happen? >> look, we've got to plan for that possibility. because there are so many members that are saying we're going to let it take place. but i have to tell you, it is irresponsible. for it to happen. i mean, why in god's name would members of congress elected by the american people take a step that would badly damage our national defense? but more importantly, undermine the support for our men and women in uniform. why would you do that? >> general dempsey, you have said this would be catastrophic.

[applause]>> we will take it from your rebuttal. we will now have a three-minute rebuttal from liana. we will leave it to josh to do that rebuttal. >> i will say couple of things quickly. first, with all due respect to the presidency, it is not up to him or the president what history provides. history presents challenges, whether he wants to do the great indicator -- it is not up to him. history will operate the way it does. we will assess the various challenges on their own. secondly, i understand the problem of knowledge and ignorance and personal and political life and diplomatic life. we all operate with the various levels of knowledge. we will never have the kind of clarity that some people want us to have before we undertake historical action. we can argue about levels of clarity that would be necessary and what we would have to know and what we would not have
vigorously the candidacy of a rock obama. and it's not only important to the black community. it's important to other americans as well. but he still faces a sort of vicious kind of ridicule from certain borders that are not unlike the america we saw when i was young in richmond, virginia. but, i think there are several americans -- i had grown tired of at least one of them. >> host: and "quitting america" you wrote america never helps anyone, even the starving and list its proposed to an american interest either strategic or economic and one cannot always distinguish one from the other. >> guest: well that's certainly largely true in foreign assistance. foreign assistance always has to be associated with a strategic purpose. when we look at what we did as a country to haiti, to thomas jefferson did everything he could to defeat the haitian revolution. the only successful slave revolt in the history of the hemisphere if these people turned back an army from spain, armies of 60,000 apiece from england and france twice and won their freedom, opened their doors to freeing slaves all over the wo
. they brought up the fact that it might be because of the obama effect. we have seen our first african-american president and that may bring operated him. in and details and republicans there is a break. >> gregg: throw that up. that is a huge difference, isn't it? >> yes, it is. we saw during the george bush years, republicans were more optimistic. we have seen more wealthy and republicans a huge drop-off. it went from 75% in 2008 who were optimistic to 30% right now. in part, democrats are more optimistic because they their president is in offe, they have more optimism about his policies and republicans converse is true. >> gregg: clearly you are optimistic personally? >> i am. >> gregg: because you are wearing bright red today? >> yes, go niners! we're both from california. look at you, wearing orange, what team is that. >> gregg: is that tampa? they are like the biggest losers in the n.f.l. i'm a loser. >> no. >> gregg: i lived for eight years in san francisco. i love the niners, during the heyday of steve young and joe montana. >> i grew up in watsonville, california. >> watsonville, high
shrugged his shoulders and move on. for president obama this is something different. this is something altogether different, but i would say this, the american people are generally -- lou: you will say this eventually. >> eventually, quite. after i talk about the dog again. the truth is, the american people are smarter than their politicians and politics and know that the problem that we have, this epidemic of mass shootings, random mass shootings is not just about guns but a sick society, a sick culture, fatherlessness and broken this in all this other stuff that cannot be fixed. there is no panacea answer to this command that is white as the president drags this out through, as steve accurately described, a senate that will not be eager to embrace and control the further we get away daughter will be for democrats to push. lou: and the other initiative on the part of the president that he has made a priority, of course, back with comprehensive immigration reform. is there the appetite for this? standing tall as the leading conservative in the gain of eight. but what is the appetite in
'm not so sure if the american people are, you know, biting their fingernails to know about the chemistry between president obama and hillary clinton but whether or not they're competent at their jobs. >> i have to say this, that focus by steve kroft about their relationship got more attention than all the other interviews put together. >> supposed to be a reality show. "60 minutes" is hard-hitting news organization. >> you can ask them a bunch of hard hitting questions and none of these soft focus interviews ever produce anything. he's very good at saying nothing, regardless of the questions being asked. >> even the act of deflecting the questions speaks volumes. >> dana, why not say, why not say, where are you on afghanistan? are you where you hope to be after four years. where are we going in this and half a dozen -- >> and the president said that he saw egypt as an example of american leadership and he's proud of the results there. now egypt might be on the edge of a military -- >> if he had 31 minutes, maybe he would have got to that. hard-hitting questions, have the media turn hilla
, the jobs report. this hits every american. you know, the rate 7.9% as we showed you, higher than when obama took office, and we got a report last week about gdp in the fourth quarter being negative, down a tenth of a percent, what gives? >> well, it's pretty much business as usual out there. the numbers are mixed, as you say, we had zero growth in the fourth quarter and -- gerri: what do you mean business as usual? this is the worst recovery we've ever seen in this country. the worst. >> business as usual in the recovery. it's been going on for four years. i'm used to it. gerri: the new normal. >> that's what i mean. tepid. i give the jobs report a b-minus. the market liked it. i think a lot of professionals are uncomfortable as jared said with where the stock market is. here's my take. we had a lot more hiring in the fourth quarter in this month than what would have made sense given the underlying path of the economy. a lot of employers saying i wish i hasn't hired. people are getting more taken out of the paychecks. there's a lot of fiscal drag. there's going to be a slow down, and i thin
people you have problems. ronald reagan lowered taxes and slowed down the spending. obama has done the opposite. >> what you said makings perfect sense. but that is not popular when you talk about it in the africa-american community is it >> it is not. but i dare say 90 percent of the people. high told black people in the economic recovery we would be lookingalt 14 percent unemployment and that is lower than the people that abandoned it a substantial number of people would not have voted for him. the number one reason the economy and he's not delivering. >> talk about the policiless that are hurting black americanings whampt were the policiless that you feel have kept people from being able to move forward. >> when i was in college we read a back called the negro family a case near national academies. >> 20 of the blacks were born out of wet lookings that has tripem for whites is it 35 percent. we have rewarded people and given women financial incent itches and allowed the men to abandoneded thet. bill cosbee called them unwed fathers. >> single parent hood and kids growing up and
the president shooting at camp david in a recent interview mr. obama says he understand it is views of gun owners because he is a sports shooter himself, leading some to question whether the president had ever fired a gun. over the last few days, one major american media company after another has announced that it has been attacked by hackers, twitter says its system was broken into and we have heard the same from three of the nation's biggest newspapers. some of these companies suspect that china is behind all of this and nancy cordes has been investigating. >> twitter called it an extremely sophisticated attack, that may have compromised as many as 250,000 user names passwords and e-mail addresses. a top official at the social networking site posted this message. this attack was not the work of amateurs, he said, and we do not believe it was an isolated incident. twitter won't say who is behind the attack, but it is the fourth high profile hacking to surface this week. atto date the washington post revealed it too had been targeted following similar announcements from the wall street jou
with you. we have inauguration this week. barack obama. january 19, 2013. this very month is full of epic anniversaries regarding race in american history. a separate 150 years ago says the emancipation proclamation. by lincoln which is now popularized in the story of the 13th amendment, just to january's later in 1865. nominated for the academy award for giving a sense of that history. more pertinent, 150 years, 2013, to get a sense of how tricky this history has been, i want you to think about the 50-year anniversary. fifty years ago this january, january 1963i was getting my driver's license. that was a big deal. martin luther king was not resolved to go into birmingham this month. he decided, and he did not tell his father, and he did not tell any of his board members because the new try to stop and. what he said was, after eight years since the decision the forces defending segregation had mobilized vociferously across a segregated states than the forces of freedom, and we are about to lose our window in history, and a final take more risk than i have the way the students have been t
when mr. obama took office, it was 7.8%. right now, it's just ticked up a bit, 7.9%. the percentage of american who is are not working as much as they would like to, in 2009, that was 14.2%. today, up just a hair, 14.4%, the president claims the capitol is dysfunctional. >> i bet most americans are thinking the same thing right now -- nothing will get done in washington this year, or next year, or maybe even the year after that, because washington is broken. can you blame them for feeling a little cynical? that's the reason my jobs bill that would put a million more people back to work has been voted down by republicans in congress time and time again. it is the biggest source of gridlock in washington and has been over the last 3 years. now here's the thing -- remember i told you this was a choice that we have to make? because what is holding us back right now is not that we don't have good answers for how we could grow the economy faster or put more people back to work. the problem is we have a stalemate in washington. this week, we received the 50 estimate of america's economic g
that there is a new awareness that the american people don't want gridlock or sclerosis and it this hyperpartisanship. one thing, i think, that president obama has demonstrated is an ability to reach across the aisle and to try to invite more cooperation, but he's now tempering that with a new firmness, as we saw in the fiscal cliff that i think will serve him in good step. >> al gore, always a pleasure. >> thank you. >>> we will be back.

? the rights of suspects? the secret surveillance of american citizens? the swollen executive powers first claimed by george w. bush and now by barack obama? soon after he succeeded bush, president obama announced he would not permit torture and would close down the detention camp at guantanamo bay. he also said this -- >> our actions in defense of liberty will be just as our cause. and that we the people will uphold our fundamental values as vigilantly as we protect our security. once again america's moral example must be the bedrock and the beacon of our global leadership. >> four years later, guantanamo not only remains open, but a few days ago, the state department announced it was eliminating the office assigned to close the prison and move its detainees. meanwhile, president obama has stepped up the use of unmanned drones against suspected terrorists abroad. those drone attacks have killed a growing number of civilians and have prompted the united nations to launch an investigation into their legality and the deadly toll on innocent people. >> the central objective of the investigati
settle things across -- the bedrock announcement or agreement of americans is that people who can't stand george bush and who can't stand barack obama are going to respect votes to allow those processes to go forward. and that is nonviolence. in many of the country in the world, including the ones that will be in the headlines yesterday and the ones in the headlines tomorrow, people don't do that. and that's why so much of the world is still in flames. >> you seem to have a sense of stark reality that might happen if america doesn't reclaim that sense of history. regarding the promise of democracy. so if that doesn't happen, what do you foresee in the next several years as the future of america evolves and the changing demographics, et cetera? am i asking the question? >> yes, ma'am. well, if you studied history, sometimes it takes catastrophes to get people to wake up and get a better -- the civil war is about as big a catastrophe as you could ask for. and a century of segregation was a catastrophe for black people. most of the rest of the world was unconscious but that's the price we pa

americans of americans out of work. in his weekly address yesterday, president obama blamed the weekly economic growth on manufacturing issues in washington like the fiscal curve. >> 2013 can be a year of solid growth, more jobs and higher wages. but that will only happen if we put a stop to self-inflicted wounds in washington. >> fortunately the bad gdp news was balanced with more hopeful signs and the labor department's latest jobs report on friday. employers added more jobs for january. but in november and december, the economy added a combined 127,000 more jobs than initially reported. with those revisions, the lowest turn around looks fairly impressive. in 2009, the u.s. economy lost an average of 421,000 jobs a month, staggering figure. by 2012, we were gaining an average of 181 that you say jobs a month. that's good news, of course, but is not enough to get us back to full employment anytime soon. is the modest rate of job growth we're experiencing now the new normal or is the economy finally on the cusp of reaching the escaped velocity we need of returning to levels of employme
years. under president obama's leadership, we've ended the war in iraq, begun a transition in afghanistan and brought osama bin laden to justice. we've also revitalized american diplomacy and strengthened our alliances and while our economic recovery is not yet complete, we are heading in the right direction. in short, america today is stronger at home and more respected in the world. and our global leadership is on firmer footing than many predicted. to understand what we have been trying to do the last four years, it's helpful to start with some history. last year, i was honored to deliver the lecture at the forrestal naval acadamy named for our first secretary of defense after world war ii. in 1946, james forrestal noted in his diary that the soviets believed in the post-war world should be shaped by a handful of major power acting alone, but, he went on, the american point of view is that all nations professing a desire for peace and democracy should participate. and what ended up happening in the years since is something in between. the united states and our allies suc
. it was a political success in washington because you could stand up now with the american people and with a straight face pretend that the iraq war was not a total catastrophe. and the democrats, they've seeded the ground on it. because when obama became the commander in chief, he had to put on the stance that, look, it might have been a really dumb decision, but you guys have done great and the surge worked and the surge, in fact, worked so well we're going to go to afghanistan. that was the argument to go there. so i think they see the narrative and it's tough to get it back. and -- >> the surge in both cases has some political implication here. it's covering the u.s. rear so that the united states can withdrawal its troops, leave these countries to whatever their fates are going to be and say, well, we tried. we put in the maximum effort. and i thought it was unseemly the way in which mccain tight to get chuck hagel to say yes or no. clearly this country is in a great deal of trouble and clearly we have to await the judgment of history and see how this comes out five years, ten years down the rad
